Take out all the obvious screws around the base and coloured top using the appropiate driver. There is one screw under the flap used to hold the dust filter in place. The flap is spring loaded and can only be removed (as I see it) once the top is taken from the base. To remove the screw I used a pair of long nose pliers and some patience. Once the top is clear of the base, other screws can be easily seen and removed.
My problem was a badly worn bearing at the commutator end of the motor. There was so much movement that the brushes would not follow the commutator with a result of excessive noise and sparking. The brushes had dug into the commutator segments and chipped etc.
The bearing is permanently pressed into the motor end and cannot be replaced. This means a new motor which, in my part of the world, was quoted as $250.00. My neighbour will be purchasing a new vacuum cleaner but after 15 years with the old one he hasn't done too badly!

Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water
and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the
As others have suggested, I removed the water reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but firmly removed the two red nozzles.
Elsewhere I have read suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized residue from the cleaning solution).
There was also a bit of blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you can blow through both of them with little resistance.
Reassemble: Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks and power it up.
In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!!
p.s. Make sure you do give it about a minute after you turn it on before you try spraying. If the pump is not allowed sufficient time to prime, you may not get proper flow.

SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The ET2000 has a latch that is located at the very end of the machine lid (about 6 cm in front of where hose clips in. If you sit the machine up on its back end you should see the black lever that needs to be pushed in. Now I will also say that it is possible that you have actually been pushing this but the lid still wont open, this is because every now and again the whole latch moves itself out of alignment by about a milimetre. The easy fix for this is a gentle screw drive to assist the relesing of the catch, this needs to be gently pushed in at the same time as squeezing the latch (hand at top of latch screwdriver at base kind of toward the middle of machine). You should be able to get it open like this with only light pressure. Now of course if you need bags or filters please visit us at NelsonVacuums.com.au.
Kind regards Alec
